Techlace is Giro’s latest shoe fixture system and we think it is going to make some waves in the road cycling shoe world. What makes it so special? Across the top of your foot, you get the comfortable and unique fit of a lace based closure system, but, thanks to the velcro straps which the laces are attached to, you can get the shoes on and off and adjust them much more easily than with a full lace system. Giro have also teamed up with Boa (suppliers of the popular Boa dial adjuster system) and the Factress fitting system is finished with a Boa dial adjuster on the upper strap, allowing precise 1mm adjustments and also allowing you to quickly whip the shoes off at the end of your ride.
In addition to the innovative fixing system, the Factress is an incredibly well specced shoe for performance road riding. A top of the range Easton carbon sole (which is one of the thinnest, stiffest, lightest soles available) ensures highly efficient power transfer to the pedals, an adjustable footbed system provides additional fit customisation and a highly breathable one piece upper provides temperature and moisture regulation.
